2023: ‘Tinubu knows my party’ – Sanusi

With the 2023 general elections fast approaching, former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has disclosed the only party he belongs to.

Sanusi said the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu is aware that he belongs to the party called Nigeria.

He disclosed this while noting that he’s not a member of any political party.

Sanusi spoke while addressing Tinubu and other guests in Kaduna during the seventh edition of KadInvest, an annual event organised by the Kaduna State Investment Promotion Agency yesterday.

The former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, also lamented oil theft, Nigeria’s rising debt profile, unbalanced subsidy payment and soaring foreign exchange, amongst other monetary and economic challenges facing Nigeria at the moment.

He called for transparency and credibility in the management of the nation’s resources and demanded the unbundling of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited, saying the company is not a cash cow but should be run as an independent enterprise with high-level accountability.

Sanusi further urged States to free themselves from excessive reliance on the Federal Government.

“I keep repeating, hope you remember that I lost my job at the Central Bank for this same problem.

“It is not about a particular party. I have no party. My party is Nigeria. This is the problem we had in 2014. Asiwaju (Tinubu) knows my party is Nigeria,” he said.
